Jodhpur, the melting pot of cultures and 2nd largest city in Rajasthan, has always enchanted travellers with its picturesque views and incomparable beauty. The ‘Sun City’ is not just famous for forts and palaces but is also a destination where you can embark on an exploration like never before.
The historical significance of Mehrangarh Fort is no secret and the entire structure is no less than a masterpiece waiting to be explored. Standing 400 feet above the city, this magnificent fort was constructed in 1459 AD by Rao Jodha. The entire area is adorned with intricate Rajasthani carvings and ancient artefacts from the Mughal dynasty.
Made of white marbles, the architecture of Jaswant Thada is one in a million and radiates pure beauty when the sunlight hits its surface. This memorial site of the Rajput clan still stands strong and was built in the 19th century by Maharaja Sardar Singh. Also known as the ‘Taj Mahal’ of Mewar, this structure represents the true Rajasthani style of designs and motifs.
Located in the old city, Clock Tower is another brilliant site that needs to be visited at least once when you’re in Jodhpur. Not just this, the entire area is dotted with colourful shops selling handicrafts, spices and other local specialities of the city, known as Sadar Market. Travellers usually prefer visiting it in the evening when the place lights up beautifully and shoppers are in full swing.
